Junior College TE holding UT offer

Former Auburn signee Ken Adams is now residing at a Mississippi Junior College. Adams is currently holding two official offers, one from the University of Tennessee. Does he plan on taking an official visit to Rocky Top? Does he have a desire to stay in the SEC? For those answers and more, InsideTennessee has the latest on his recruitment.

Former Auburn signee Ken Adams is looking for a new home.

The Enterprise Alabama native signed with the Tigers out of high school, but never arrived at the Plains due to academic issues.

The talented tight end/defensive end is now at Copiah Lincoln Community College in Mississippi and is looking forward to getting back to Division 1 football.

Adams currently holds two official offers, one from the University of Tennessee and the other from Southern Mississippi.

InsideTennessee.com caught up with Adams Sunday evening to gauge his interest in the University of Tennessee.

"I have a lot of interest in Tennessee," Adams said. "I love the SEC and would love to get back there. I'm not committed to anyone right now, I'm wide open."

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound athlete with 4.56 speed, is being recruited on both sides of the ball. The Vols apparently want him on the offensive side.

"Tennessee is recruiting me as a tight end," Adams said. "I like their new offensive system. I have watched a couple of their games. I like the way they play."

Adams is also impressed with the Tennessee new coaching staff.

"Coach (Frank) Wilson is a cool coach," Adams said. "He was at our game last week. I have been getting to know him the last few months; he is easy to talk to about a lot of things. He seems to be a really great guy."

Adams is currently planning on taking an official visit to Tennessee in a couple of weeks for the South Carolina game.

"Right now we haven't locked it down yet, but that's when I think I'm going," Adams explained. "I'm excited about taking a trip there."

Adams is expected to graduate in December. He will have three years to play two at the school of his choice.
